But Nebraska took a jump up in the offensive stats, especially in the passing department. Nebraska was 111th in the country last week, but now move "all" the way up to 100th, coming off Taylor Martinez' freshmen record-setting day.
Martinez went 23-of-35 in the passing game, completing five passes for scores against no interceptions. That helped the Huskers take a nice jump up in team passing efficiency, going from 47th in the country to 27th this week.
The single biggest jump was in kickoff returns. Senior wide receiver Niles Paul averaged over 50 yards per kickoff return against Oklahoma State, his long going for 100 yards and a touchdown. Paul ranks 40th in the country with an average of 25.56 yards per return.
In the category of tackles for loss, the Huskers are almost at the bottom now, dropping to 119th this week from 118th a week ago. The only team now in Nebraska's way from securing the spot as the worst team in the country in regard to tackles for loss, is Rice.
